What is Essure?
Essure is a non-surgical, permanent birth control implant manufactured by Bayer. Essure works by causing scar tissue to build up in the fallopian tubes, and is 99.3 percent effective at preventing pregnancy.
Essure was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002, and over 750,000 devices have been sold.
Reports of serious side effects from Essure led to widespread efforts by public safety advocates to recall the device. In 2017, Bayer removed Essure from all markets outside of the U.S. and announced in July 2018 that Essure would be removed from the U.S. by the end of the year.
Now, thousands of individuals are filing lawsuits against Bayer after they suffered serious injuries from Essure.
